How should 10 pounds of flour be stored?
People react to unexpected, unpredictable situations, such as a pandemic, by stocking up on toilet paper, beef jerky, and active dry yeast. Psychologists have investigated our frightened purchase behavior during this period, and their findings make perfect sense; the phrase “scarcity mindset” needs no explanation.
- I own more yeast than I require.
- I’m sorry! Even when there isn’t a pandemic, I buy in bulk the goods that I consume rapidly, such as rice, flour(s), sugar, oats, and cans of tuna.
- I get a better bargain, fewer visits to the grocery store, less packaging waste, and less time in the car, and yes, I feel SAFETY, CONTROL, and all of those other wonderful fantasies when we bulk shop.
This lengthy prelude led me to the main point. When purchasing in bulk, whether for a reasonable or illogical cause, you’ll need bulk containers to keep the items as airtight and durable as possible. Do you keep things in a cool, dark location? Consider a bunker.
Then, fill it with a handful of these, my preferred containers for bulk food storage. Regarding a 10-pound bag of flour, Since baking is one of my only hobbies, I go through so much flour that I keep an 8-quart Cambro of flour on my kitchen counter; it’s the ideal size for a 10-pound bag of King Arthur’s all-purpose flour.
I put a 6-quart Cambro container with granulated sugar on top of the sugar. (Occasionally, lids are offered separately.) Cambros are favored by restaurants, bakers, and our test kitchen for a variety of reasons, including their stackability, airtight closures, and the ability of square containers to nestle together on shelves without wasting space.
